Meh, we're in the grips of argentine ants anyway.

Got back from Belize last month, and had a colony of the creepy big buggers living near our camp...

Mad giant lines in the grass along their "scout" paths, and looked like they could be a major problem if they got riled up.

REALLY don't want those bastards around here.

When they come it will be Bullet ants.

Ants creep me out much more than  spiders, flies, or scorpions.  I guess it's their overwhelming numbers.

I'd rather have almost anything other than the insane quantities of carpenter ants we have.  Impossible to get rid of.  You wipe out a dozen nests and they will be repopulated within a week from satellite nests.

Although probably still annoying, the big headed ants don't seem so bad because they're not sugar seeking therefore would be less likely to get in your food and they don't chew up your house.  Maybe they would take out the carpenter ants.

I for one would miss our megacephalic overlords.

Correction: that was the wrong kind of "big-headed ant." Try this:

And we only have to wait until 2080 for it to slow.

We were only saved because Joan Collins gave her all, and gave the ants such a gawdawful case of VD that they were nearly wiped out.

Help us, Lindsay Lohan.  Help us!

Says you, subby. I've had several shockingly large ants seemingly materialize from nowhere inside my house the last week or two. Highly disconcerting.

Oh, they'll be back. They're patient. Very patient...
